Christmas Bargains & Lies

Ugh Christmas bargains.. I love them.. OK.. I admit it.. I’m a liar. I said NO TOYS this Christmas after getting halfway through writing a post on why I’m not buying toys this christmas.. and what did I do? That’s right I acted like a child myself when the Mr spotted this Wilko Wooden Pirate Ship reduced from £15 to £5!!!!! Well now..

Christmas Bargains - Wilko Pirate Ship

At that price and being the last one on the shelf, I couldn’t resist. I can’t wait to play with it I cant wait to see Izzy play with it.. Especially as she is a huge pirate fan just like her Mummy! 😉

On to the next Aisle and I spotted the Wilko Wooden Peg Story kits reduced to 50p each!! So of course I had to grab one of each… Realising I had officially started Christmas shopping!

I had that ‘I’ve started so I’ll continue’ moment and picked up two £1 Shopkin Activity Kit’s as we’ve bought a few. As there’s always at least 2 of the activities inside the girls love to do them together. Not exactly a bargain as all these activity packs cost £1 in most places but still well worth it. (Again I lied, as I had previously told Eva NO SHOPKINS THIS CHRISTMAS!)

I have to admit although I totally lied to myself about not buying toys this year, I am pretty pleased that for a grand total of £8.50 I am up to 6 presents already! Ah I do love Christmas bargains!

I may have talked myself into believing I technically only bought 1 toy as the rest are ‘craft kits’ but I’m hoping we don’t end up buying too many toys. In all honesty though with Wilko amongst other’s reducing things like this and me still being a bit of a child at times, I can see it being a struggle, haha!

Perhaps I’ll just stick to non character toys?.. Or maybe I’ll fail miserably, get carried away myself & end up picking up toys for the next 10 or so years lol! (When do children stop wanting toys?) Keep an eye out for future posts & fails 😉

Have you started Christmas shopping? Have you found any awesome bargains yet? I’d love to hear and see what bargains you’ve found so far!

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday




    I love a good bargain. I haven't had a chance to look through my CBT stuff for you. My husband and I are in the process of buying a house and I am now full of cold. I will get round to doing it though! x

        How have you been? It is really hectic. My husband works really long days too so we don't have much time to sort out moving x

          I've been quite good, new meds seem to be helping but I'm only on day 4. Oh no! I guess you'll be doing most of the packing and organizing then? Xx

            Glad to hear that you are doing ok with the med change. We are going to be spending most of our weekends packing and organising. I am dreading it but at the same time I can't wait to be in our new house x

    Bargain! You can't leave something like that on the shelf though can you! You know I love a good bargain and can regularly found in the reduced section in wilkos. I have 2 presents so far. One from a 3 for 2 in argos as I needed birthday presents and another one was an absolute bargain in Home Bargains that Olivia will love! Thanks so much for linking to #KCACOLS. Hope you can come back again next Sunday

      Definitely not! Woo I loved deals & bargains that make christmas a little easier. Will try my best to remember hehe x

    Great bargains! I too accidentally started Christmas shopping a couple of weeks ago. I ordered 2 kids money boxes on Amazon and when they came put them away instead as I realised I have 2 to buy for for the 1st time this year. So excited for my baby's 1st Christmas! #KCACOLS

    I love a bargain and I think if I was in the same situation, I wouldn't have been able to resist either! #KCACOLS

    What a bargain! That wooden ship looks ace too. I can honestly say I haven't even thought about Christmas shopping yet. Our Christmas shopping tends to be left until the last minute thanks to Farther Christmas himself lol.xx #KCACOLS

    Great bargains! I wish I was organised enough to start thinking about christmas x #KCACOLS

      Thank you. Haha! I've got most of our shopping list written up too with price guidelines for me to try and beat with bargains haha x

    Haha, I absolutely love this!!! Sometimes they're just able to reel you in with their amazing bargains and that's okay because, you know what, sometimes the fun and memories are totally worth it!! I hope you all enjoy the toys this Christmas <3 #KCACOLS

      Haha so true! They have soooo many toys but the ship especially is something we will all enjoy playing with the girls, including my brother :) x

      relentlesslypurple | 8 years ago Reply

    You can't go wrong for £5 totally justifies you going back on the no toys thing! I have to say I'm being good this year and have three presents already, they were also bargains :) I'm trying to be organised this year and spread out the Christmas shoppingx #KCACOLS

      Well done! It's so stressful trying to do it all in December I'm determined to be ready haha x

      relentlesslypurple | 8 years ago Reply

    Well it's hardly your fault if they insist on reducing it to a fiver. I think you can most certainly be excused and yes you did only buy one toy!
